Human Rights is a historical shared journey

By: 12 Petals Media Group

The nature of human rights is that of a journey. It is a journey through a history of shared humanity by all humankind. Human Rights will always be a delicate and continual work in progress.

It is then our responsibility to uphold these rights not just for one's self, one's family, one's own group, or one's nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. The fundamental human rights are:

  • The right to life
  • The right to liberty
  • The right to live in freedom and safety
  • Freedom from slavery and forced labor
  • Freedom of thought, conscience, and religion
  • The right to express our beliefs
  • Freedom of expression
  • Freedom of association and assembly
  • The right to respect for private and family life
  • The right to marry and to start a family
  • The right not to be discriminated against in respect of these rights and freedoms
  • The right to peaceful enjoyment of our own property
  • The right to an education
  • The right to participate in free elections
  • The right not to be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention, or exile
  • The right to a fair trial
  • Freedom from torture and degrading treatment
  • The right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law
  • The right to a public trial with the guarantees necessary for our defense
  • The right to work and be protected against unemployment
  • The right to a standard of living (adequate health, food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social security and services)
